"This season has been a tremendous season for us, for me", Dragic said.

By rule, because teams can not trade successive future first-round picks, the Heat must exercise a selection, with their 2021 first-round choice having been dealt to the Phoenix Suns in the 2015 trade for Goran Dragic.

The Heat are laying the groundwork to aggressively pursue Giannis Antetokounmpo in 2021 free agency, according to the Athletic.The back-to-back league MVP, Antetokounmpo has not drawn close to an extension with the Bucks, leaving his future wide open beyond next season.

The Heat hold Bird Rights with all six, able to exceed the salary cap to retain each. And that's what I really want to do. "So I'll leave it at that".

The Heat will look to re-sign Dragic, and with the organization prioritizing flexibility it could mean a shorter-term contract offer.

Like Crowder, he would like to stay. When asked about his main priority in free agency, he said "I want to be happy...." And because of his experience, he would be eligible for a trade exception in his contract.

"We're going to learn from this".

Miami Heat's Bam Adebayo dunks during the second half in Game 6 of basketball's NBA Finals against the Los Angeles Lakers on Oct. 11, 2020 (October 12 in Manila) in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. "There's still a lot of uncertainly in the future".

Beyond Crowder and Dragic, teammates Derrick Jones Jr., Meyers Leonard, Solomon Hill and Udonis Haslem also will be unrestricted free agents. The end result, of course, wasn't there, but the heat turned out to be one of the best stories of the season.

"It was something that I'm going to cherish for the rest of my life", Dragic said of the Heat playoff run, "and, you know, can't wait to get back".

The Heat, however, can make a pre-arranged deal to select a player and then immediately flip him elsewhere.
